Danny Dyer thinks Nigel Farage is still upset with him after insult during political rant

Is the former UKIP leader still upset with the actor?

EastEnders actor Danny Dyer claims Nigel Farage “still has the hump” with him.

The 41-year-old soap star thinks the former UKIP leader is upset with him after he called him a “[bleep in a suit] in a blistering political rant during an interview with The Big Issue in November.

Appearing on Alan Carr’s Christmas Cracker, Danny said: “He’s got the hump with me because I called him another [bleep] in a suit.”

The Football Factory actor is well-known for voicing his opinions on a wide range of issues.

And the London-born star is set to continue that trend when he hosts Channel 4’s Alternative Christmas Message this year.

The show, which will be broadcast on Christmas Day (25.12.18) at 3pm, is going up against Queen Elizabeth’s annual message and is set to compare the “backstabbing” in the government to the goings-on in Danny’s BBC One soap.

In a teaser clip posted on Channel 4’s YouTube channel, Danny says: “This year has been pretty full-on, to be honest. Like that shambles down in Westminster, what a palaver that is.

“I mean, where are our leaders? Where are they? There’s been more backstabbing than we have in Albert Square.”

He will also take aim at US President Donald Trump, describing him as an “absolute melt” after the politician cancelled a visit to a cemetery in France in November “due to the weather”.

Danny says: “It ain’t any better for the Yanks though, is it? What an absolute melt they’ve got there.

“He don’t want to turn up to memorials because it’s raining. He don’t fancy a little trip to Britain because there’s people here that just don’t like him. Leave off.”
